EPGL and InWith Corp. announced that they will partner to build the “InLens 1.0” brand of electronic augmented, mobile contact lenses. The “InLens” line is planned to include augmented reality, autofocus and more electronic contact lens applications tied to mobile phone applications.
In 2016, EPGL received the US Patent on the “Elastic Circuit” which is an essential element for molding and mass production of soft electronic contact lenses. Electronically enhanced contact lenses are the ultimate platform for augmented vision ($150 billion estimated market), advanced forms of vision correction, diagnostics and drug delivery. “InLenses” will be built to be compatible with both Apple iOS and Google Android Operating systems. The mobile network will open the door to perhaps hundreds of vision based display applications in the future. EPGL has multiple ophthalmic patents pending in this field.
Already, Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc. has acquired first rights to purchase the working products that are built from EPGL technologies. The announcement marks the beginning of the next phase for building and commercialization.
“With our progress, we have the unprecedented opportunity to become the market leader in this multi-billion dollar electronic /ophthalmic field. We now own the IP that giants have been seeking and we have the know-how to back up what we have planned,” said Michael Hayes, President of EPGL.
